Insert the slicing blade on the Cuisinart® food processor work bowl. Arrange the carrots in the small feed tube and slice using the small pusher. Place sliced carrots in a steamer basket to fit a 3- or 4-quart saucepan filled with an inch of water. Place the pan with a tight fitting lid over high heat. Once the water comes to a boil reduce the heat to medium. Steam carrots for 20 minutes until they are completely soft. Place steamed carrots in work bowl fitted with the metal chopping blade. Pulse 5 times and then turn machine on for 20 seconds. Scrape work bowl. Process for 20 more seconds. For a smoother consistency, pulse in 1 tablespoon of cooking liquid until desired consistency is reached. Allow mixture to cool. Store in refrigerator in airtight container for up to 3 days or fill ice cube trays or other containers to freeze.
